Chris Brown's Image Makeover: Tips From the Stars
Also necessary: a fashion makeover.
Poor Chris Brown. He's had a rough couple weeks.
Ever since he jumped back into the national spotlight with his Grammy performance, everybody's out to get him. Critics panned his show. Feminists and other sane individuals were horrified at some girls' tweets about it. Birds attacked his face. Then the whole world got all up in his business about his collaboration with Rihanna, and his attendance at her spliff-tastic birthday party.
It's enough to make a guy lose his shit and steal a cellphone.
Clearly, the man needs an image makeover. And as they say on Intervention, the nice thing about rock bottom is that there's nowhere to go but up. So we put together a few suggestions for Brown's personal re-branding, based on past celebrities' tactics. We're not saying they're all winners. But they're a hell of a lot better than what the guy's doing now.
It's hard to believe that Mitt Romney wasn't always the right-wing robot you see on TV. But a recent campaign ad features past quotes from the politician like "I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose" and "I don't line up with the National Rifle Association." Now that Romney's tossed that healthy world view, Republicans are willing to consider him for the presidency. If Chris Brown adopts similar stances, the red states may embrace him as well. And hey, he's already halfway there -- no one's can accuse him of preserving or protecting anything about a woman.
Give to Charity
Everyone loves a philanthropist. And it's easy to imagine Chris Brown "going to the ghetto and passing stuff out of [his] car." Like that iPhone he stole.
